Synopsis for massachusetts and rhode island coastal waters.. Northeast winds will be gradually shifting to the east by midweek. A tropical depression may form off the coast of florida early next week. This system may track close enough to affect the coastal waters with elevated seas by mid week. A cold front will approach the waters from the west on Thursday. For information on possible hazardous weather beyond the 24-36 hour forecast period, please visit www.weather.gov/boston and follow the current hazards link above the map on the left.

Synopsis
High pressure will remain over new england through tonight and
then drift offshore on Tuesday. A cold front gradually
approaches Tuesday night into Wednesday and passes through the
region Wednesday night into early Thursday. High pressure
returns briefly Friday before another cold front passes through
late Friday into Saturday. High pressure builds over the
northeast Saturday and Sunday.

Near term until 6 am this morning
High pressure continues to build over new england early this
morning. Stratus clouds are moving to the west on an onshore
flow. There may be some expansion of these low level clouds
especially near the coast through day break.

Dry conditions are expected with temperatures in the lower 50s
inland and in the mid 50s to around 60 along the coast.

Short term 6 am this morning through 6 pm Tuesday
Low level moisture will linger into Monday morning as an
easterly flow continues with high pressure remaining north of
the region. This will result in mostly cloudy conditions along
the coast Monday morning with conditions improving by Monday
afternoon.

Temperatures on Monday will be in the mid 70s.

There is a high risk of rip current development at the atlantic
ocean beaches through Monday evening.

Long term Tuesday night through Sunday
The extended period Tuesday through Saturday is fairly consistent
with the previous forecast. Ridging from northern new england and
along the mid atlantic seaboard will drift into the western atlantic
early Tuesday as a longwave trough from near alaska digs into the
northern plains and upper midwest. This longwave trough will send a
couple of cold fronts through the region late Wednesday night into
early Thursday and then Friday into Saturday. The strongest front
will be the first one.

The changes with this front, is a quicker passage, and less forcing
along the front as the upper trough is now lifting farther to the
north and retrograding slowly. So, will still have chance
probabilities. With the longwave upper trough weakening Thursday and
Friday and the flow more zonal the next front will be even weaker
than earlier expected, with little moisture. As a result, this front
is now forecast to come through dry.

With the front Wednesday into early Thursday both CAPE and
instability will be limited, so will have showers with only slight
chances of thunder, and mainly across the inland, until later across
the marine areas, right with the frontal passage.

Higher pressure then builds in for the upcoming labor day weekend.

Aviation 06z Monday through Friday
High pressure will remain over new england through Monday night
before departing to the east on Tuesday.

Forecast challenge is how far west MVFR ceilings over SE new
england work overnight. For the time, have confined it to kgon
and kisp after 06z. The best chance would be at kgon (which
briefly had a period of MVFR ceilings prior to 06z). Winds do
become more northerly overnight which may keep the lower
ceilings to the east of the terminals.

This pattern will keep the area under a ne-e flow during the
time period with backing to the NE tonight and then veering more
to the E as the day progresses on Monday. Outside of a few
gusts into the teens this evening winds will be 10-15 kt at the
coastal terminals and 5-10 kt at the inland terminals.

Outlook for 06z Tuesday through Friday
Mon night-tue Vfr.

Wed MVFR or lower possible in showers and thunderstorms.

Thu MainlyVFR. Morning showers possible.

Fri Vfr.

Marine
Gusty northeast to east winds remain across the ocean waters,
with seas up to 5 to 8 ft on average overnight. Winds and gusts
will only subside a couple of knots overnight. SCA remains in
effect on the ocean and GOES through Monday night.

Winds should gradually diminish on Monday, but seas will remain
above small craft advisory conditions through Monday night.

Hydrology
No hydrologic impacts are anticipated through the end of the
week.

Tides coastal flooding
A prolonged period of easterly flow will gradually increase tide
levels into mid week. Localized minor coastal flooding is possible
with Monday evening high tides along the south shore back bays of
queens and nassau counties, with the threat of at least isolated
minor coastal flooding continuing during the evening high tide
cycles through the mid week period.

Nyc NOAA weather radio station kwo35 (162.55 mhz) remains off
the air.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
